Review the following sample student paper and answer the following Critical Thinking Exercise questions:

What do you notice about the sample research paper? What are its strengths, and what might still need work? Does the thesis give a clear statement of what the paper will argue? Does each paragraph address a single main idea? What sorts of transitions does the author use? Ultimately, does this sample student paper meet the definition of a “good” literary research paper to you? Why or why not? Your response should include at least one direct quote from the paper. For example, you might identify the thesis statement, a sentence with effective transition between paragraphs, or even a sentence with issues or errors.

For more information about citing in MLA Style, see the Purdue Online Writing Lab here:

Questions about Source Validity
  • Any issue related to grammar/mechanics (punctuation, etc)
  • Issues with content (understanding a particular aspect of a story)
  • Literary terms/concepts (a certain literary element, or a particular literary device or critical theory, etc).
Task 1:

Create a new discussion topic on or before the required date/time by clicking the ‘**REPLY HERE**’ post. In your reply, you will post your answers to the above questions. Your response should be a minimum of five sentences. Going over the minimum sentence requirement is acceptable. It is suggested that you use MS Word or another word processing application that can check spelling/grammar and can show the word count prior to posting.

Task 2:

After you have created and posted your main response, you are then required to read and respond to a minimum of 2 of your classmate’s discussion topics. Each of your responses should be a minimum of 50 words. Think of your responses in terms of a contribution to an ongoing dialogue. Elaborate on a single idea and keep your post short but concise as if you were holding a conversation with your classmate(s). Incorporate what you have learned from the weekly reading material and from your own real-world experiences. Do not forget to use proper MLA documentation whenever necessary. The grading rubric for this assignment can be found in the Grading Rubrics under Critical Thinking Exercise.
